Apart from helping you make sure the medical words in your progress notes and reports are spelled accurately, a medical spell checker can enhance patient safety through properly spelled drug names. The correct spelling of drug names is a particularly complex problem with look-alike and sound-alike drug names that can lead to serious medical errors.
